Rest in Loving Essence
As we begin our journey of healing,
We ask to release from our lives all that no longer serves Life.
We agree to let go of the noise and the toxins
And the habits and the fears
And the feelings that hurt ourselves and others.
We shed that which is stale and rigid and lifeless
And relinquish that which has constrained
Our creativity and compassion.
We go deeper, listening patiently as the veils clear,
And fresh spaces open to new breath.
And in for-giving space,
Sprouting fresh roots
As it stirs in readiness
To dance again in love with all that is
day 1~ integrity ~ invitation for daily reflection offered by shelley ostroff
As we embark on our collective healing journey with Water, we offer this loving invitation to commune with Water in an honoring way - to discover and bless her vast primordial wisdom as source, sustenance and unifier of all Life and the primary medicine of our time.
When we are willing to learn from Water how to remember our own watery wisdom in service of all of Life, she generously reveals to us glimpses of her vast, ancient mysteries from all time.
The invitation today is to commune with Water in deep meditative inquiry holding this question in our hearts.
What can we learn from Water about integrity as an essential foundation for our healing pathway forward?
With love and gratitude,

Opening Blessing from the White Lion Heartlands
with Linda Tucker
Opening with a lionhearted prayer for the waters of the world, Linda Tucker speaks from the Heart of White Lion ancestral territories, an ancient Sacred Natural Site which exactly aligns with the Great Sphinx of Giza along the world’s longest river, the Nile. At the turn of the millennium, Linda Tucker’s work Mystery of the White Lions, first revealed the “Golden Nile Meridian”: a terrestrial river, subterranean river and celestial river of stars, which holds the Source Codes of speciation and the continuance of Life itself.
Her powerful invocation evokes the White Lions in their mighty guardianship role to assist humanity to restore right-relationship with our planet, calling upon the world’s leaders to uphold the World Water Law, that future generations of all species shall flourish along with Gaia herself.
World Water Year 2021 - An Opening Ceremony by UNITY EARTH
UNITY EARTH is partnering with 7 Days of Rest & Radical Healing for 2021 to bring you A World Water Year 2021 Opening Ceremony.
The events for the healing of our planetary Waters that emerged over 2020 brought the opportunity to highlight this journey and to invite the community to participate in ceremony and in sacred activism to manifest our prayers.
With this Opening Ceremony we're creating an inspirational space for the diverse spiritual wisdom traditions of UNITY EARTH to come together and share prayers, blessings, music and stories for planetary Waters, the World Water Law, and for World Water Year 2021 as a year of Radical Healing. This ceremony will be an essential medicine for our time - showing how the reverence of Water and right relationship with Water is emphasised in all trad itions. In this way we're focusing not only on what unites us, but also on that which is considered sacred and an integral part of all traditions.

A Blessing for the World Water Law
from the Mamos of the Sierra Nevada
Mamo Rodrigo offers a sacred blessing for the Waters and the World Water Law on behalf of the 4 tribes of the Sierra: Kogis, Wiwas, Arhuacos and Kankuamos.
With deep gratitude to Ginny Griego for arranging this sacred offering.
MY JOURNEY WITH THE MAMOS OF SIERRA NEVADA OF SANTA MARTA
A message from Ginny Griego
I met the Mamos while I was living in Brazil doing Planetary work. Although I was born in Colombia very close to Sierra Nevada - their home - I never knew of the Mamos until I met them in the Inner Planes during my daily Spiritual Practice, which required to send healing energy to the Earth.
One day the Mamos showed up to help me and since that day in the early 2000's we have been working together. This Journey has been one of deep learning and expansion of my Soul, especially my Heart.
Being around them has definitely made me a more loving person. I encountered them on my path because we had a similar mission to help the Planet as many people on Earth feel compelled to do now.
I need to emphasize that in this partnership the one who has been blessed and graced with their Wisdom is me. I mostly help them with 3D matters such as translating for them when they come to the US. Part of my job is to help them with reforestation projects in the Sierra and act as their voice to control the illegal mining inside the reservation. In other words I am a liaison between them and the outside World.
About the video:
There are 3 Mamos in the video and a Wiwa leader who is the younger man in the video. He was there on behalf of the Kankuamo tribe as their representative because when they do Ceremony/Pagamento all the 4 tribes of the Sierra: Kogis, Wiwas, Arhuacos and Kankuamos must be present.
Presently, the Kankuamo tribe which has been almost completely absorbed by Colombian society, doesn't have a Mamo. They are in the process of recovering their identity, language and traditional wisdom.
The Mamos in the video are younger Mamos because the video was done when the Sierra was closed up by the government because of strict health protocols due to the virus. So the older Mamos were not allowed to leave the reservation. The Kogis, Wiwas and Arhuacos have a different immune system than us, Westerners.
Words that need clarification:
Pagamento: It is a Ceremony to connect with Nature and to honor both Mother Nature and Mother Earth. It is their way to pay back to Nature all what Nature has given us since the day we were born. It is the way the Mamos honor and celebrate Mother Nature, the way the Mamos communicate with it.
They do Paqamento by offering materials such as Tumas, and objects that Nature has given them: seashells, rocks, insects, resins etc.
They do Pagamento by playing music and singing songs to the trees and the water. They do Pagamento by telling Sacred Stories. They do Pagamento by doing visualization exercises. They are in constant communication with Nature. They are here to nurture all the Kingdoms of Nature by listening to them in order to repair the damage that humans have caused to the Planet.
Tumas: are Pre Columbian pieces of quartz and semi-precious stones left by their Ancestors for them to continue doing Pagamento/Ceremony for Nature and the Earth. These Tumas are centuries old pieces of Quartz.
Kwina: They talked about Kwina as one of the forms they receive communication from the Water. Kwina is something that dowsers experience naturally, even before using a pendulum. Kwina are the physical sensations such as electric waves, chills, goose bumps, body temperature changes, and the involuntary movement of a body part that a person gets when connecting with Spirit.
All of that is Kwina.
They also receive messages by Kashi which is a form of Kinesiology asking Yes/No questions using your fingers instead of a pendulum.
The Mamos divine or do a consultation, as they'd rather say, in the same fashion as Nostradamus used to do. They will divine with a bowl of water that has a water tuma (those are called Dzhirakwitshi) in it. This is also one of the forms they receive communication from the Water.
They will divine by looking into the water and getting in a trance-like state. They will get full visions, and they will check possible outcomes. This form of Divining is called Jatuqua.

The Water Code of Integrity
with Water researcher and crystallographer, Veda Austin
Veda Austin is a water researcher, public speaker, mother, artist and author. She has dedicated the last 8 years observing and photographing the life of Water. She believes that water is fluid intelligence, observing itself through every living organism on the planet and in the Universe. Her primary area of focus is photographing water in its 'state of creation', the space between liquid and ice. It is through her remarkable crystallographic photos that water reveals its awareness of not only Creation, but thought and intention through imagery. www.vedaaustin.com

As we begin the new year please join me as we partake in the beautiful event The 7 Days of Rest and Radical Healing. This year we focus on the waters of our amazing planet. Just as the water flows to a rhythm sit deep inside your heart in that sacred space and listen to the rhythm of your heart. You are connected to the water, our cells and the droplets of water connect us and nourish us. We are part of our great Mother Earth. Our beautiful blue planet flows within us and through us. Live with an integrity to cherish, honor, respect and connect cohesively with the Nature of our planet. Feel the connection we have to all on this earth thru the water that flows. Be the blessing that you were created to be. Feel the love from Nature to Humanity and return that love. I offer you some time to Walk with Wolves and enjoy the solitude and connection that In Harmony With Nature strives to share with our friends who walk this Earth.

Water heals. Water offers us the purest and most powerful of medicines. Its power is subtle and deep. If we do not have spring water, living water from the mountains, we can try to get filtered, energised water. And, if what we have is urban water - or bottled water -, we can energize it with vibration, bowls, music. We can also make "diamond water", which is to mix spring water and / or prayed water with the one we have at home, to awaken the memory of living water.
